Anna Kendrick and director Jeffrey Blitz are trading the debate room for a wedding reception. EW has confirmed that Kendrick will reunite with Rocket Science director Blitz for Table 19, a comedy about strangers at a destination wedding who find themselves seated at the misfit table. Craig Robinson, Lisa Kudrow, Stephen Merchant, Tony Revolori, June Squibb, Wyatt Russell, and Amanda Crew also star. The film is slated to begin production in Atlanta next week.
Rocket Science, which told the story of a stuttering teen who joined his high school debate team because of a crush, earned rave reviews for Kendrick when it premiered at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival. Blitz won the Dramatic Directing Award, and the film was nominated for the Dramatic Grand Jury Prize.
